I will be keeping Carmine's Italian Seafood in my Recently Lost Landmarks list, sad to say.
The South Street Seaport eatery closed last summer after 107 years. Soon after, the owner, Greg Molini, made some rumblings about reopening in a new space. I doubted this, knowing landlords and the real estate market. Sure enough, this week he revealed that plans had fallen through with the proposed new space, 29 Peck Slip. The "financials didn't work." In other words, the landlord wanted the moon.
